    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Not bad. If they really wanted to do the Yankees thing, here's what they should have done: - Standard helmet (You're ND, don't mess with that lid) - White jersey and pants with sublimated pin stripes - Numbers in the Yankee font with a very thin gold outline - Navy blue ND sleeve logo They'd pay their respects to the Yankees but still look like Notre Dame. Alas...

    Major League Football is back and better than ever

    This is a really creative thread with excellent concepts. However, you should reconsider the MLF name and shield. Because when I see the letters MLF, I don't think about football.

    Kill it. With fire.

    Favorite jersey number?

    13 or 96. Yes, 96 is because of a certain hockey player known for the triple deke.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Apparently this is a thing. Supposedly there are Rodgers-Brewers and Jimmy G-Giants jerseys floating around too.

    NFL 2018 changes

    That's a perfect football uniform. Modern flair with the numbers but nothing over the top. And all three colors play an important role in the set. Alas...

    The board is more polarized over these uniforms than any set I can remember.

    NFL 2018 changes

    OK, I'm a professional writer. I'll play along. The uniform is a severe overreaction to the previous set. By eschewing any design whatsoever, the Jags have gone from a modern eyesore to a faux-traditional uniform that neglects one color (gold) and needlessly segregates the black and teal. There are few distinguishing marks on the uniforms, and multiple combinations could make Jacksonville look like a one-color team. Is that takedown thorough enough? Asking you too, @oldschoolvikings.

    What makes it lazy and repetitive if it's also... correct? If you have to point out all the ways these aren't practice jerseys, then they probably look too much like practice jerseys. Which these do. Since they look like practice jerseys.

    If something looks like a practice jersey then it's fine to say it looks like a practice jersey. Those Jaguars uniforms look like practice jerseys.

    Penn State is blue and white. The Raiders are silver and black and both are used together effectively. The Jags have three bold colors yet there's so little mingling between them on the uniforms.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I shouldn’t be surprised how much the board loves these. But I am. And how anybody can say the current set looks like the original boggles my mind. The originals had color and character and were visually interesting. The current resembles practice jerseys, and when the Jags wear them they’ll look like a team that forgot its main set. They could be a college team from Nike’s minimalist phase, and nobody liked that. Yet so many people are swooning over this trash. Within two seasons the board will be sick of these. People, just because you hated the jazzed-up previous set doesn’t mean you have to love the booooring and undercooked current set.

    The Jags look even more plain and boring in game action. What a total miss.

    Progress. Kudos.

    NY Jets

    This set is truly excellent and would be a fine continuation of the Jets' aesthetic heritage. It's not #FireEmoji because it doesn't have to be. One minor issue is the striping of the green socks. Why is it a single white stripe when the double stripe motif is prevalent throughout the rest of the set?

    Jets Uniform Concept By Kong Tom

    Look at the work @BrandMooreArt did on the Jets. Now compare it to your work. One set has a grasp on the aesthetic history of the franchise and sport, and presents the work in a professional and digestible way. Then there's your concept. NFL teams don't wear a sash or a giant logo on the front of their jerseys. From a design standpoint, those two elements are competing and wouldn't work on a regular shirt, let alone an NFL jersey. Watch some football, research the history of the teams you're redesigning, download some templates and font packages, and study the best people on this board. That's how to improve.
  17. Yes, the NBA has an aesthetic problem and the Warriors’ dominance isn’t everybody’s cup of tea. But the NBA is probably the healthiest of the four major leagues in this country.

    Memphis Grizzlies Unveil New Logos and Uniforms

    I said it on the NBA 2018-19 thread and I'll say it here: the franchise really should've changed its name after moving from Vancouver. They're trying to marry the Memphis motif with a grizzly bear name and primary logo. Those are two things that just don't go together. Memphis Blues would've been so perfect. (These uniforms are fine. Would like some yellow on the white set, but they're fine.)

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Grizz should've changed their name when they moved.
  20. In the end, this is on the Lakers. If they didn't want black on the purple jersey, it wouldn't be there.
  21. The Hollywood Nights and Black Mamba sets were alts, and there's no excuse for the purple to be relegated to the third jersey. And yeah, I don't love the Celtics uniform you posted, but those were also alts. That's the crucial point.
  22. Uh, the purple (forum blue) is interesting. (Is that a black side panel? My goodness what a mess.)

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    There is nothing #FireEmoji about this set. It's completely boring, and lacks imagination or anything unique. People would get bored with this sooooo quick.
